In version 1.8 of the Zivid SDK, the first software release of 2020, our primary focus is speed of the Capture Assistant, and making sure wrappers for Python, ROS, and C# are up to date.
Faster Capture Assistant
This version of Capture Assistant encompasses all previous improvements on material handling and ambient light, in addition to overall speed gains, and finally, better captures for applications with shorter cycle times.
An optimized algorithm provides enhanced results when you work with a limited time budget, typically less than 1 second.
In addition to the overall robustness, the average scene analysis time is 25% shorter than earlier versions of Capture Assistant.
Default Assisted Mode in Zivid Studio
With the new Capture Assistant's speed and performance, we modified the capture dialog in Zivid Studio to default to Assisted Mode in SDK 1.8.
Capture Assistant in Python, ROS, and C#
Visit Zivid's GitHub repo to find the wrappers for Python and ROS, where we updated them to support the Capture Assistant. C# is also updated as part of the main Windows installer.
Python and ROS
You can now use the 2D API in both Python and ROS. The APIs are now stable and in version 1.0.0.
We've added some under the hood improvements, including compatibility with Intel NEO OpenCL drivers on Linux, and better support for GPUs without double-precision floating-point capabilities.
